Tom Brady was at his absolute best last evening, torching the Steelers secondary for a franchise playoff record 384 yards and leading the New England Patriots to a very convincing 36-17 victory over Pittsburgh.
Go back to the beginning of the season. Brady was suspended for the first four games of the year for his part in Deflategate. Ever since he came back in Week Five, Brady has been on a mission to take the Patriots back to the promised land.
Some folks have been calling this 2016 NFL season the Tom Brady redemption tour. I prefer to call it the Up Yours Roger Goodell Tour. In thirteen days, there is a very real chance that the NFL Commissioner will be giving the Vince Lombardi Trophy to the Patriots and, if this happens, it will be one of the most awkward moments in the history of the National Football League.
